You remember the Gürtel scandal which involved several top PP members in Madrid and Valencia who stood accused of accepting bribes to award contracts to event promotion companies including Orange Market? One of these contracts was for the start of the Volvo ocean race in Valencia.
The Valencian regional president Francisco Camps and PP regional secretary Ricardo Costa have now been summoned by the Valencian Supreme Court (TSJCV) to deliver statements as accused parties on Tuesday, May 19th.
Sr Camps and Sr Costa have repeatedly proclaimed their innocence regarding the scandal led by Francisco Correa and Orange Market, represented in Valencia by Alvaro Pérez ‘El Bigotes'. The National PP party have backed up both Camps and Costa.
